He did explain why he couldnt. And here is a link that shows some attempt to measure differences.

Anyhow what did you find highly debatable?
Honestly I am not interested in the squeeze box approach since it is too limited for my needs, though I can appreciate that it is great for alot of people, and that is why I posted. If it helps things sound better then it was worth the time.
Dawnrazor said:Yes fan,
How does one do multiple outputs with a squeeze for digital crossovers?? How does one do room correction? VST support? Balanced analog outputs?? What if you want to use other software?? .Wav support? (OK that is disingenuous on my part...regardless of what the slim devices forum says the sb does .wav perfectly and preserves all the metadata if you know how to use a directory structure.) But you can see the limitations. Also the digital output wasnt good until the Touch came out so I nixed it.
For all you ones and zeros guys here is a post by an engineer who was a beta tester for the touch and a fan of that approach. He compares the spdif of the touch to the sb3 and finds that it is better on the touch and notice that bit about firmware influencing the sound:

Anyhow it is a great solution for most just not for me, though the price is great, and if I liked internet radio it would be worth adding to my system or if I wanted to run it to a usb only dac. That might be a great combo.
Skepticism is great if that is all it is. But too often that word is a smoke screen for closemindedness.
Nothing wrong with rationality. I encourage it myself which is kind of why I found the reception disappointing. Rationally speaking wouldnt it have made more sense to try the mods and see. Or do kids really know they dont like broccoli without trying it?
Anyhow enjoy your forum and forgive me for trying to help.
